Mekhane, the god of machines and knowledge, with his devoted followers. He created humanity in collaboration with Yaldabaoth, the god of flesh and instinct. Yaldabaoth became enraged at the advancement of human technology, and wanted to make us mindless animals once more. After a long battle, Mekhane shattered himself in order to build a cage to contain her. Now, his body is scattered across dimensions, and the cage grows weaker by the day. The Church of the Broken God must reassemble him before the next War of the Flesh, or Yaldabaoth and her Sarkists will wreck destruction upon the world.
First attempt at some kind of concept art.
Holy 343 this took ages and was one of the hardest things I'd painted so far.
What with the skewed angle, the weird perspective, and the light bouncing off everywhere. The result isn't as disastrous as I expected though. The symbols on his chest means 'destroy life' in Ancient Sumerian because I like doing a bit of research.
...the floating stuff in the foreground are not flower petals, I swear.
Mekhane belongs to the awesome SCP Foundation
